Rugby School - English Summer School

Rugby School was founded in 1567 during the reign of Elizabeth I. It is one of the most famous schools in England, where the game of rugby was invented in 1823 when William Webb Ellis picked up a soccer ball and ran with it. 

Overview

Rugby School is suited to students aged 12-17 years, and we offer a choice of courses; our Trinity English Examination course or the IELTS Examination course.

A great location
The school is situated a short walk from the centre of the historic market town of Rugby, which is based in an area known as the Heart of England. Many historic landmarks are within easy reach. A short coach ride takes you to Stratford-Upon-Avon – Shakespeare’s birthplace; to Warwick Castle, the finest medieval castle in the country; or to the famous university town of Oxford.

A 50-minute train trip takes you into central London, where you can go shopping in Oxford Street or Covent Garden, enjoy a river cruise or take in a visit to the London Eye/British Museum.

The very best facilities
Classes are held in the multi-million pound Collingwood Centre, opened in 2013. It has the very best in educational, sports and dining facilities.

You'll find state-of-the art classrooms, all equipped with the latest teaching aids. There's an ICT suite complete with 24 computers. The sports hall offers five-a-side football, basketball, badminton, aerobics and dodge ball and students on the course will have the unique opportunity to play rugby on the original pitch where the game was invented. The contemporary dining room seats 180. 

You’ll also have access to the school’s 25 metre, 6 lane swimming pool; soccer, rugby and rounders pitches; squash courts and all-weather floodlit tennis courts; a Design Centre for art/craft and a Social Centre for discos and other social events.

English School Friends
At all Thames Valley centres, you'll have the chance to make friends with English boys and girls of a similar age. They'll be with you throughout the day: working with you in lessons, joining you for lunch, taking part in your afternoon activities and encouraging you to speak as much English as possible.

"I loved people of different nationalities, it was cool being with them. The teachers were amazing and their method of teaching is the best I ever experienced in my life. I will go back to my country and suggest to the Principal these cool methods of teaching"
